My partner and I booked the evening tour. After a small mix up at check in which was quickly, graciously, and humorously resolved, we settled in with two other couples (a total of 6) for the quick class before beginning the tour. Our first stop was at Fattoria Montecchio. Our guide there, Fillipo(?) was knowledgeable and very friendly. He answered... More

Caterina, our wine expert, was wonderful in explaining the different types of wine characteristic to the Tuscan Region. We started with a white, then moved on to 3 reds (Chianti, Vini Nobili, and a Barollo) and ended up with a Vin Santo. We learned which production years were good, which were somewhat good, which to (honestly) avoid, and about how... More

We can't say anything less than what everyone else has-the Chianti Classico trip was a wonderful half day adventure for our time in Florence. Our guide was a Master Sommelier and hilarious to boot. The trip itself was very well coordinated, making it a relaxing and enjoyable experience overall. The wineries were incredibly beautiful and the staff friendly and informative.... More

My wife and I just got back from Italy and one of our top three highlights was the Chianti Classico Wine Time PM tour provided by the Tuscan Wine School in Florence. We picked this option because it had great reviews and we were only staying in Florence for 2 days. We were not disappointed. There was a quick 30-minute... More

We picked this wine tour because it had good reviews and small groups. We really wanted to do the full day tour but they were booked out for some weeks in advance, so we settled for the half day tour. It did not disappoint. Our guide was charming, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There was an itinery and schedule but it was... More

The tour was well organized, informative and fun. We just drank the bottle of Casa Solo Chianti Classico Reserva that I bought and it was wonderful. Looking forward to trying the olive oil when I get home.

My friend and I had a great experience with a half day “Chianti wine time” tour! Our tour guide Tom was friendly and very accommodating to every request. The wine and food was excellent. Especially we liked our visit at the winery Casa Emma, mostly because of our guide; she was so friendly, kind, fun and knowledgeable about wines. Thank... More

We did this based on trip advisor reviews. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon in Tuscan wine country. Both villas were very nice and had good wines to taste. The weather was beautiful while we were there so they set up our dinner on the patio at the second villa and it was great. We had 4... More

Good way to see the countryside. Wife & I have visited a few hundred wineries around the world. This was as relaxing and enjoyable as any.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour with Tom. Over the day, we learned the basics of Chianti Classico wines, and were able to taste a wide range of different blends. The day was topped with the Tuscan lunch that left us both full and satisfied. We cannot recommend this tour enough.
